Y is for Young Adult Reads & Some of my Favorites #AtoZChallenge

Posted by on Apr 29, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Books, Young Adult & Family Reads | 4 comments

Those who have read my blog before knows how much I want to strangle folks who label their books young adult half the time. Indie authors are very guilty of doing this to books and assume because a book has a young protagonist that it makes it a young adult read. So wrong it is not funny.

Vignette – A Dog’s Life – #FourthWallFriday by @JohnDolanAuthor #AtoZChallenge

Posted by on Apr 25, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Authors, Books, Fourth-Wall Friday | 8 comments

VFourth-Wall Fridays are usually long and involved but today I asked John to write me  vignette to represent V for the #AtoZChallenge. A small window where he and his world-build of his series mixes it up. Vignette’s are fun, not so much a teaser but more like a way to get someone interested with a taste. Like the taste from the sauce bubbling, you get just what you need to get an idea of what it will be like but not a full story. This one is wrapped up in a nice ribbon for a great Fourth-Wall Friday addition.

U is for a Unique Series – @HiJayPosey Answers a Question on Dystopian Fiction

Posted by on Apr 24, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Books | 0 comments

U-is-forLast year I picked up a book called THREE and was trapped in a real dystopian genre bender. A bit of fantasy, a bit of horror, great sci-fi and all so well wrought I was entranced at the utter beauty even in the middle of the bleakness of this post-apocalyptic world. When I reached the end I was shocked and thrilled. A real dystopia. No HEA here, people.  When Angry Robot contacted me about the second in the series I am pretty sure I made a lot of happy noises. Now that I have it to read as an ARC I am almost afraid to start. I contacted Jay and asked him if he could answer me why dystopian? I am a huge fan and it is very rare that you can find true dystopian fiction with all the classic conventions you expect and not some pretty foo-foo young adult coming of age story with girls in pretty dresses.

Secrets & Showers as a Cabin Dweller – #Alaskan Living #AtoZChallenge

Posted by on Apr 22, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Alaska Living, Books, Cabin Commentary | 2 comments

“Put your name on the list.” she said as she pushed over a dog-eared notebook for me to sign. ” There are four people ahead of you. Do you have preference on which shower you want?” Of course I did, for crying out loud. If you did not get the ones closest to the main hot water heater, you were going to have to deal with the chance of lukewarm water. I already live in enough discomfort having no running water; I really could do without a cold shower.

#Alaskan Mountain Ranges featuring @NorthernHorse Photography #AtoZChallenge

Posted by on Apr 21, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Alaska Living, Books, Photos | 6 comments

It’s been a bit since I posted something fabulous about Alaska. (I also apologize for this being so late in the day still working on recovering from my flesh eating virus… cheese and bananas I tell you!!) .. ANYWAY I was planning on writing a post on Reviewing today but after I saw some of the latest northern light images from a local photographer, Lara Poirrier of Northern Source Images I decided to show of Alaska the best way I know how, with some amazing photographs.
